Calls to name Stadio San Paolo after Maradona

There are calls for the Stadio San Paolo in Naples to be renamed after Diego Armando Maradona following his death at the age of 60.

Naming the stadium after El Pibe de Oro would be a way of ensuring he will always be present at the arena he considered to be his natural home.

He had returned to the Stadio San Paolo in 2005 to visit the Partenopei and his people.

In Argentina, the Government has announced three days of national mourning for its greatest ever football player.

He reached the peak of his club career at Napoli from 1984 to 1991, winning their only two Serie A titles.
